Heightened Sugar Intake Significantly Raises Death Rate in Mice, Study Finds
Source Newsroom: TurboCharged
Newswise — A recent study in Nature Communications found that for mice following a diet containing 25 percent extra sugar—which is the mouse equivalent of a healthy human diet plus three cans of soda or other sweetened beverage daily—the females died at twice the normal rate and males were 25 percent less likely to hold territory and reproduce. The results were based a toxicity test developed at the University of Utah.
The researchers concluded this is evidence that sugar consumed at concentrations currently considered safe has a dramatic adverse impact on mammal health, and demonstrates the adverse effects of sugar in the human diet.
“The National Research Council recommends that people consume no more than 25 percent of their daily calories from ‘added sugar,’” say boomer generation health experts Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel, authors of the books TurboCharged: Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet and Exercise Rules in the Dust (April 2011, BSH) and The TurboCharged Mind (January 2012, BSH).
“This recommendation doesn’t include what is naturally in fruits, vegetables, grains and other non-processed food,” adds Tom. “Up to 25 percent of Americans consume this ‘recommended’ amount, and many consume even more. The 25 percent sugar-added diet for mice is the equivalent of a human drinking three cans of sweetened soda or other beverage daily, along with an otherwise healthy, no-sugar-added diet. Sugar consumption in America has increased 50 percent since 1970. During this period we have seen a dramatic increase in metabolic diseases such as diabetes, obesity, fatty liver and cardiovascular disease. There seems to be no safe dose of added sugar, so total avoidance is advised if you are interested in optimal health and longevity.”
